Well, in many ways it appears that day has indeed come. One side claims that although it was decidedly wrong for Eminem to use such language, the situation only points towards bigger issues affecting hip-hop music and culture. They claim that it is hip-hop in general that is at fault and the Eminem tapes are just another example of that.
The other side of the debate contends that it is Eminem who is solely at fault. A better view may be that both sides of the debate hold true. Eminem should be held accountable for the comments that he made, and the simple apologies that he has offered do not suffice. We also believe that the comments that other hip-hop artists use against women are equally deplorable.
However, we understand that socio-economic differences that have long existed in this country provide an unbalanced playing field. In order to fully understand the current state of affairs, it is important to analyze them in a socio-historical framework. The rapper Eminem was indeed an unusual find for famed gangsta rap pioneer Dr.
Joseph, on October 17, Young Marshall spent a great deal of his underprivileged childhood bouncing between his rural hometown and the contrasting urban landscape of Detroit.
Hip-hop culture and rapping made an early impression on him and he began formulating lyrics and songs by the tender age of His residence in Detroit was spent living in a partially African-American neighborhood where he made plenty of black friends and enemies.
Mathers now adopting the name Eminem: This album received a great deal of praise throughout underground circles but lacked the major label backing that could help it achieve commercial success. The album quickly became a major hit and, within a year, went triple platinum, certifying sales of 3 million plus records.
His presence helped skyrocket the album to multi-platinum success. His records get played on rock stations that otherwise refuse to include rap music into their format.
He managed to get top billing over more established, veteran rap acts on a major rap tour before his major-label debut was ever released. He appeared on the cover of Rolling Stone after the appearance of only one single from his debut album.
InEminem was able to survive a storm of staunch criticism by the gay and lesbian community that was directed toward what they deemed as gay-bashing lyrics on his The Marshall Mathers LP. Eminem showed up at the 43rd Grammy Awards, hauled in two Grammys, including one for Best Rap Album, and performed with pop superstar and outspoken gay activist Elton John.
This is a feat that no other rap artist had been able to achieve before. In MayEminem again debuted at the top of the pop charts with The Eminem Show, an album that sold over 1 million copies in its first week of release. Much has been said both within and outside of the music industry about his overnight accomplishments.
Dre, his poor upbringing in Detroit with a relative closeness to African-Americans, and his amazing lyrical prowess, afford him two things that are of very high value in the hip-hop community: This is not meant to be a glamorizing praise piece for Eminem or a scathing attack.
Instead, it is a critique of the conditions that aided in his rise and that simultaneously exclude African-American artists from achieving this kind of access.
Indeed, Eminem is a phenomenally gifted rapper whose often obscene and offensive lyrics are best understood if they are analyzed as biting commentary on popular culture and societal contradictions. Although Eminem surrounds himself with African-Americans witness his award acceptance speech at the Grammy awards, where he is the only white on stage8 and exudes a certain level of respect for the black roots of his craft, his success reveals many racial issues in popular culture and is itself problematic.
This is not to say that all African-Americans or Latinos have a full knowledge of the history or the foundations of hip-hop culture.
However, because of their position in the society, they inherently have at least some experience of the factors that helped spark the hip-hop revolution factors like racism, socioeconomic oppression, etc.
Although it is not absolutely necessary to have full knowledge of these factors to be a fan of the music, an exploitative relationship occurs when the music itself becomes a commodity stripped of other characteristics that are culturally significant in the formation of the art form.
